Positive Meniscus Lenses And Negative Meniscus Lenses

The Positive Meniscus Lenses are a convex-concave lens, but it is thicker at the center than at the edges. They are felt polished and are used universally in the ophthalmic industry where convention dictates that lens power be specified in Diopters.

The Negative Meniscus Lenses are a convex-concave lens, but it is thinner at the center than at the edges. Otherwise description is similar to Plano Concave lenses.

1. What's the advantages of using Meniscus Lenses?


It produce a smaller focal point and fewer aberrations than a standard plano-convex lens and enhance image quality.

 

2. What is Meniscus Lens?


Meniscus lenses have two curved surfaces,convex on one side and concave on the other side. It is thicker at the center than at the edges. When a meniscus lens is combined with another lens, the focal length is shortened and the numerical aperture of the system is increased.

 

3. What's the applications of Meniscus Lens?


Negative meniscus lenses are often used for Infrared Application. These lenses are used as an alternative to other negative lenses with a greater curvature on the concave side and a smaller curvature on the convex side.

Micro-components-Rod Lenses
Micro Sizes Rod Lens
Rod Lenses are used for fiber coupling and laser diode beam shaping, lenses with a 0mm working distance are ideal for collimation of single and multi-mode optical fibers and laser diodes because the lens can be positioned and glued directly to the emission source. For focusing applications, or in instances where the lens can’t be in direct contact with the emission source, all lenses are available with a small working distance as well. UNI Optics can provide the size from Φ1~Φ15mm, quantity price and custom sizes, including variations in polished/ground surfaces, are available to OEM customers upon request.

4) Protected Gold: Ravg > 98% from 650nm to 16um



2、What are the features of Metallic coated mirror?


Metallic coated mirror have many key features below:

Wide spectral range

Not sensitive to the incidence angle and polarization state

Low cost

Non-durable

Relatively low reflectance

Low laser damage threshold


3、What UNI Optics can do for you?


Common Specifications:

Substrate Materials: N-BK7, Fused silica, Pyrex;Float glass

Dimensional tolerance: +/-0.1mm

Surface quality:  60-40

Parallelism:  3’

Flatness: λ/4 per 25mm@633nm

Bevel: Protective

One surface: Polished and Metallic coating

The other surface: Fine ground


Note: Aluminum is the most widely used metal reflection film, from near UV to near IR, have high reflectivity, and with low cost. Silver has higher reflectivity in the visible and near infrared wavelength than the aluminum film, but the silver in the air will be rapid oxidation, color darkening, makes the film performance and firmness declined rapidly. Gold film has a good consistency with high reflectivity in the near, middle and far infrared range, can control the thermal radiation effectively, but it is relatively soft, easy bruising, and should be paid very close attention to clean, and the cost is very high.
